Charity - What More Can He Give? - 29th Word in the "Good Words" Project

Updated on October 21, 2016

Charity 29th word in the "Good Words" Project, originally created by Jo "Grace" Goldsmith, by giving us words to live by in hopes to help and inspire her fellow hubbers, to become the best writers we can be.

When Grace told me about the project, I promised to write a poem for each of the good words she gave us weekly.

This is Joanna "Gracie's Calling! And she is working hard to help anyone in the writing world to fit in among their peers and to write for the readers who are hungry for the written word.

Thank you Jo-Goldsmith11 for what you are doing for the literary world here on HubPages.

Charity - What more can He give?

© By Shyron Shenko

It has been said "Charity begins at home"

But let us look and see, what is Charity?

Nothing can be given begrudgingly

Because that would not be Charity


We could have Faith

We could have Faith

To move a mountain

If we have not Charity

We have nothing

_____________1stCorinthians 13:2

Charity is Love ______1st Corinthians 13:13
Charity is Love ______1st Corinthians 13:13 | Source

Faith, Hope, and Charity

These three go hand in hand

But, here is something we must understand

†Charity, is the greatest of the three

_____________1stCorinthians 13:13

My Grace is' sufficient for thee: For my strength is made perfect in weakness ________________1Ind Corinthians 12:9
My Grace is' sufficient for thee: For my strength is made perfect in weakness ________________1Ind Corinthians 12:9 | Source

God gave us his only Son

Charity that the world may live

He gave us all his Love

What more can He give?

      Au fait, thank you for the comment and sharing, I do appreciate you.

      I know one some churches do help the homeless as much as they possible can. Like the ones that are collecting for the tornado victims from a few days ago.

      Hope all is well with you and wishing you a better year 2016

      Blessings and Hugs my friend.

      Lots of people think about and contribute to charity at Christmas time and that's good, but people have to eat year around. Some churches try to help the homeless year around and they are usually a good place to donate because they work mostly with volunteers so that more of the money goes to help the homeless. Even if a person doesn't belong to that particular church it is good to donate to them because they help more people than the Red Cross and many other big charities that spend a lot on salaries for administration. Sharing.

      Hope you are staying warm. A pretty day today if a little chilly. Take care . . .

      Thank you John (jodah), I appreciate you, your comments and your up votes. You are so right that we need to embrace charity in our actions, then there would be no need for words.

      Hi Shyron, a very good description of "charity" and as it says in 1Corinthians it is more important than "Faith and Hope". We all need to embrace it more in not just our words but also our actions. Voted up.

      Kevin, thank you for your comments. You know that you are very much appreciated.

      I am sure the person who gave that kind of money must have given it from his/her heart. Let us hope so.

      Blessings to you dear friend.

      Charity is indeed the most important. We need to give of ourselves without question. When we see someone in need it's only natural to want to help, isn't it? Giving unwanted good to Charity shops seem to give people the sense that they've done their bit but that's the easy way out. We also need to keep an eye out for those around us who need help or compassion or just someone to talk to. Selfless and giving; how great the world would be if everyone was so.

      Luke 21:1-4 New Living Translation (NLT)

      Luke 21:01 While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. 2. Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins.[a]

      3. “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them. 4. For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has.”

      Jesus gave His life. There was risk involved. What if Judas had not played the part given him? How many people compared to Jesus, or to the widow in Luke 21:1-4 come even close to being truly charitable?

      Forgiveness and mercy are also a sort of charity. Everyone in this world needs a little of those things sometimes. Giving those things to other people helps insure oneself, too, will receive them when it really matters.

      When one is down and out, in deep trouble of any kind, it has been my experience that they discover who their true friends are.

      Generally the takers, and those people who judge themselves as better than people who fall on hard luck, disappear, and quickly. They are what we sometimes refer to as 'fair weather friends.' They don't want to be seen as sympathetic to lazy slothful people (who else would fall on hard times?), and they don't want to risk having to offer a helping hand in any regard. Parting with any of their dear pennies is just too awful to even think about. Preferable to think about gutting a hog while having dinner.

      When the superior people and/or the takers fall on hard times there is a good reason for it, but when others do so it is a character/personality flaw -- not to mention that people struggling through difficult times rarely have anything the takers can take.

      An important subject. Voted up and interesting. Will share.

      I am as good as I can be all things considered. Hope you and John are also seeing improvement everyday and that soon you'll be fit as fiddles again, if that hasn't happened already.

      It is more blessed to give than receive. That's an old scripture but one I live by. I do feel joy when I've given to the needy. I could always do more, like being nonjudgemental to other's situations, I like the old cliche, ' Walk a mile in my shoes. ' Beautiful Shyron. Well done...

      Yes, that is what it means to me to. This morning on the radio they had a prize for a donation to C.A.R.E. (child cancer). Someone from Publix donated $5,000 to win the prize, I am not sure if there was 'love' in the charity.

      I should remember Marty Robbins, the fifties were my favorites, I might recall Pat and Dolly singing it.

      Kevin, thank you for the comment, thumb-up, pin and sharing. To me the word Charity means giving 'with love' without being cajoled of shamed into giving.

      This song "On The Wings of a Dove" was written by Bob Ferguson in the late 1950's, the first person I heard sing it was Ferlin Husky on the Grand Ole Opry, but others who sang it was Marty Robbins (on here), Pat Boone, Dolly Parton, and that is just a few.

      Blessings to you dear friend

      Jo, thank you for the comment. Charity is love, and sometimes it is hard for a person to accept charity/love if the have a hard time giving love. I also believe same as you, graciously accept, the gift of charity and love and pass it on to others.

      Blessings to my dear friend

      Charity. What does the word mean? Did someone receive it or give it? Actually doing it, now that is strong. Your poem was pretty strong too Shyron. I forget who sings it but I remember that song and I love it. I voted up+++, shared and pinned it.

      "Charity, is the greatest of the three". Pretty important point for believers.

      Another very good word. Charity ...what better way is there to show our humanity. Some people are too proud to accept charity, even when they are in need, I believe that there is a time to give and a time to receive., accept it with thanks and when you can, simply pass it on.
